The gym at Obere Au sports facilities is one of a kind in the area, as the entrance fee also includes entry to the indoor and outdoor pools as well as the Aquamarine warm water experience pool! And even with that combined offer, the entrance is lower than at many other places. So you can warm up swimming a few lengths in the pool, then go off to the gym to pump some irons and then enjoy the relaxing massage jets in Aquamarine to round off the workout. The gym is open daily except Easter, Christmas, New Year and during maintenance. It also has convenient opening times on weekends.
For your stamina training there is some highly modern cardio equipment produced by Precor. Treadmills, exercise bikes, rowing machines, cross trainers, step machines, arm and core machines etc. The equipment makes for a varied and versatile cardio workout.
Use the modern weights equipment for your strength workout. Leg/arm/shoulder press, abductor and adductor machines, leg/arm curl, rope pull machines, multipress as well as barbells and dumbbells. Set your own weights and increase resistance step by step to achieve optimal results.
Here you can find an overview over the exercise equipment.
In the functional room the training can be supplemented with exercises on the floor and on the wall bars, with TRX bands, medicine balls and kettlebells.
As the gym is not supervised, you will either need to book an introduction or provide a confirmation from an external gym. The introduction is free of charge. Please book personally in advance and leave a deposit of CHF 50 at the swimming pool ticket desk. Introductions: Patrick Nauli / Leo Pedretti, every Thursday 7.45 to 9.15pm. The gym is reserved for the introductions during that time.
